S Money spent for the educadon of
your ,iliildren is money expended for

L is in his children. In ancient times,
when schools were few and far between,
there was some excuse for ignorance.
Our forefathers had not tue opportuni-
ties tnat we possess. In this age of
progress it is criminal for parents to
be negh ctful il the education of their
offspring. Civilization means educa-
tion, and institutions of learning
P abound in nearly every district in this
land. They are here for educational
purposes, therefore it is your duty to
A utilize every opportunity o,,ered. The

As an institution of learning, the
Florida State College, at Tal4 hasse,
is the equal of any similar college in
the United States, ana every bIoridian
is proud of it. Its curriculum Is see-
ond to none, while its faculty uis com-
t posed of graduates irom the best col-
leges in the rand. The history of the
college is one reflecting hoior and
glory on the State, ano is w rth re-
We do not consult the page of his-
tory to learn how Rome was founded,
but we go back of history-back into
the mythological ages, and there tradi.
tion gives us a graphic account of the
fabulous founding of that wonderful
city. We glean from the annas of my-
thology that two brothers, Romulus
and Remus, set out to found a kingdom
and setwed in the northern part of La-
tium, on the banksim of tne 'Tiber, in a
.place where seven hills rose above the
But what has this to do with the
Florida State College? Nothng, ex-
cept so far as it tends to show the
similarity in Talalhassee and Rome, in
regard to the hills. We do not have to
consult mythology in order to give a
brief history of tuis noble institution,
nor shall we attempt to enter into all
the details concerning the location of
the college in Tallahassee. The people
of Fiorda early recognized the fact
that more than a superficial knowledge
of the "three R's-reauin', ridn', and
'rithmetic," was necessary for the
Proper training of the children of the
In 1851 the Legislature passed an act
providing for "two seminaries of learn-
ing," one to be located on the eastern
and the other on the western side of
the Suwannee river. These seminaries
were established, one at Gcal and the
other at Tallahassee. In 1856 the trus-
te(s of the Florida Institute, owned by
Tallanassee, offered to the State of
Florida tie sum of "'10,000 as an in-
ducement for the location of the State
seminary in said city, the college build-
ing (then the Florida Institute), with
its appliances, to be given at an ap-
praiseA value, and the rest to be paid
Thus was laid the foundation of the
magn.:icent temple of knowledge, the
Florida State College. For some time
only males were admitted to scholar-
ship, but in 1858 arrangements were
made 1or the instruction of females.
and since that time the college has
beea open to males and females alike.
But it is not our intention to give a
complete history of the State College.
It will be sufficient t6 state that the
college is one of the best in the South,
the buildings and grounds -eing worth,
in round numbers, aoout $i75,000.
Tallahassee has the finest location of
any city in Florida, and is an ideal col-
lege town. Its natural advantages are
Unsurpassed, built as it is on a high
hill. The climate is delightful, and it
Would be impossible to Afnd a more hos-
Pitable class of people. They are both
refined and intelligent, and are ever
ready to extend the hand of friendship
Tallahassee is built on hills, and the
buildings of the State College are situ-
ated on a hill in -he western part of
the city, with a valley between the
grounds and the usness portion. A
broad avenue between rows. of trees,
'Whnos wta,.arMLdin branches afford
country. The dills, the valleys, dotte
with prosperous farms and happ:
homes, the luxuriant vegetation, th.
groves of mighty oaks and waving
pines, present a picture ihat wou.- stir
the soul of an artist or inspire tne poet
into the most ecstatic rhapsodies.
The dormitories have just been com-
pleted, and are situate( to tne south
of College Hall. fhe teachers and
pupils moved into these buildings on
Saturday, the 19th. A description of
the women's dormitory will answer for
the men's as well, as both are as near
alike as two peas in a pod. T'he bui.i
ing is two and a-hal, stories high, 124
feet lorg and 84 feet wide. There are
thirty sleeping rooms for students, a
large reception hall, and a commodious
dining room 28x52 feet -There are bath
rooms and closets on each floor, and
the fire protection is as rear perfection
as possible, a two inch nozzle and one
hundred feet of hose oeing arranged on
each floor. The sanitary arrangement
is excellent, while the light and venti-
lation of the entire building are all
that could be desired.
The bedrooms are 13x15 feet, light
an.A comfortable, handsomely furnish-
ed and conveniently arranged. Each
room contains a white enamel bed-
stead, bureau, wash stand, study table,
two good chairs and a rocker. The
beds are of patent felt, as soft as down,
supped with the best paLent springs
manufactured; the pillows are all
feathers, and weigh four pounds each.
The pupils are required to furnish
their own quilts, sheets and pillow
cases, but when the labors of the day
are ended they can repose on a couch
that will be most potent in assisting

is necessary to nourish the body and
feed the brain. The pantries, dishes,

The entire building is heated by
steam, 'each room and corridor being
supplied with a radiator that insures
an even temperature all the time (60
degrees in the bedrooms, and 70 de-
grees in the dining hall, reception hall
and parlor). The plan of the men's
dormitory is practically the same as
that of the women's. The main differ-
ence being that there is no dining
room in the men's, all the students
using the one dining room.
There are two large society ha.,s in

The marriage at Quincy Wednesday
of Miss Fiances Stephens Scott, of

A GOOD WOMAN GONE.
Perhaps no death in Tallahassee for
years past has created more profound
sorrow than that of Mrs. Joel B. Col-

four days before her death had enjoyed

Wednesday evening she was taken
suddenly ill with a congestive chill.
She had also a violent cold, and pneu-
monia set in. Saturday matters were
further complicated by another chill,
and Dr. Gwynn was called in consul-
tation with the family physician, Dr. E.
E. Philbrick. They did all that medi-
cal skili could suggest for the relief of
the sufferer, but all the time during
her conscious moments she insisted
that it was no use.

OIL AT CAIRIARRLL]TE
The National Oil Reporter states
that Maj. 0. H. Kelley, the founder of
Carrabelle, visited TAllahassee recent-
ly and gave out th" information that
he has already contracted or the bor-
ing o0 an oil well a% Carrabelle. The
machinery has already been ordered, a

tae machinery is expected by the time
the derrick is completed. The contract
is for a well 2,000 feet deep, but the

Our people may infer what this means.
I-reaffirm what I hide frequently said
before. That the growing of sugar
cane and cassava will not only prove
to be the redemption of this Southern
section, but will place it far in advance
of the North or West or elsewhere
where these products cannot be pro-
duced. So, then, you may conclude.
and that correctly, too, that this is the
coming country of the continent. There
is no other country like it. Here every

the South was increased this week by
his Inviting Booker Washington to din-.
ner with him at the White House, re-
ceiving him just exactly as he would
have received any other guest. This
fact has, of course, caused something
of a sensation among Southern men
here, who assert that the President
cannot realize the harm he has done
by his action por the effect that it
will have on the negroes of the South,

really no reason for surprise at Mr.

his selection of Governor Jones, of
Alabama,for a Fcuerai judgeship,shows
that he intends to follow President Mc-
Kinley's program of building up a de-
cent Republican party and turning
down the old disreputable organize
tion there. It ia certain that he will
not favor any plan to cut down the
representation of the South on account
of the suppression of the negro vote.
Indeed, there is reason -to believe that
his ideas on the subject are not far re-
moved from those of Senator Morgan,
of Alabama, who said recently: "The
negro is already sick of voting. There
are 10 per cent. of the race who can
vote intelligently. The rest are for the
most part on the market; their votes
can often oe had for a dollar or a
drink. They navc already been thrown
over by the people. We are living
under the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to the Constitution, but
if those amendments could be propos-
ed now to a Congress they would not
command the support of one-sixth of
the Senate and the House. That is an
indication of popular sentiment."
Int cations continue to multiply that
the Filipinos are niot resigned to Amer-
ican rule any more than the Boers are
to British dominion; they have ceased
fighting because they realize that it is
useless for them to continue. that is
all. This is shown by the sudden out-
breaft in Samar and by other smaller
and less successful uprisings in other
islands. When the news of these first
came, it was insisted by the War De-
partment (and by vreneral Otis, a fact
which alone might well have made us

Roosevelt has decided that the 20,000

that the present force shall be kept up

It is eminently characteristic of Re-
publican ideas that of all the members
of that party who have pointed out
means of disposing of the surplus not
one so tar as is known, has recom-
mended a reduction of taxation that
may prevent its piling up again. The
motto of the Republicans has always
been to exact all the money the people
can be brought to vote, with the con-
fidence that meais for spending it
can easily be found. Thus, at the last
session, with an accrued surplus of
some eighty millions and an anticipated
surplus of the same amount for the
next year, a.l that the party would con-
cede was an alleged reduction of :-
000,000, which has turn<- out so far to
amount to only $1,000,000 a month, or
$12,0 ,,000 a year. In the face of this
nulimbers of Republican Congressmen
who have been interviewed on th sub-
ject, object LO a reduction of taxation

to give him than that he shouru follow
tue old Hayes idea of trying to build
up the Republican party in the South
by putting a Southern man who has
not been openly identified with the Re-

should lose no time in getting new
ones. Not only are his advisers
seriously trying to persuade Mr.
Roosevelt to do this thing, out they
are actually naming the man. And who
do you suppose it is? Senator McLaur-

the total available force of the United
States will remain over seas for nearly
a year longer at least. Meanwhile,
leaving aside the great expense tnat
this foreign service entails, the home
garrisons are suffering severely for
want of proper attention. Scarcely one

President. Roosevelt, it is learned,
will follow the example of his prede-
cessor and commend the building up of
our shipping in general terms without
committing himself on the subsidy
proposition. He does this on the
ground that he has not studied the sub-
ject sulticiently to be able to advise
upon it-an access of modesty almost
incomprehensible on the part of the
cock-sure Rough Rider. The fact is,
his bearing under fire in these plain
words: "His bearing and manner was
a model for anybody, worthy of imi-
tation always. Under fire his facul-
ties ap eared to be always with nim.
He was* i:nder no excitement; always
cool. He frequently put nimse.. in ex-
posed positions, and I ha,. to ask him
many times not to expose himself."
Capt. CooK, whose opportunities for
seeing were the same, was equally em-
phatic in his praise of Schley s bravery
and coolness under fire. An amusing
episode occurred while Lieutenant
Commander bears was being cross-ex-
amined Dy Lemly. In denying that he
had said anything concerning the de-
lay of Admiral Schley, or his disposi-
tion to get as near the Colon as 7,000
yards, he added: "I felt very much ir-
ritated at the uelay, and it may be that
something I sa.u was misunderstood,
but I certainly could not have'made
that remark." Lemly thought he ha(.
the witness, and after a squabble with
Mr. Raynor was allowed to ask the
cause of the irritation. Sears replied:
"I was very much irritated over the de-
lay occasioned by ,apt Higginson ask-
ing that the, attack be put off until
after lunch time." Then it was up to
the audience to laugh and they did.
Mr. Roosevelt says tuat the new Is-
thmian canal treaty with England will
be ready to go to the Senate as soon
as the session of Congress opens, and
Secretary Hay says he has promises
from a sufficient number of Senators to
make sure of its ratification.

said: "I should oppose any reciprocity
proposition tha. would injure a single

is by io means certain that he will

Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidney-

It used to be considered that only urinary

but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin-
ning in kidney trouble.-

by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild

done much toward making this a beau-

to build business blocks that will be

The matter has been discussed by

to erect a building that will prove a

monument to the enterprising knight

working together in the matter.
So far as the plans have matured,

payments so arranged that those whQ

It is to be sincerely hoped that the
plan wil materialize. If it does, the
new structure will mark an era in the
construction of public houses in Tal-
lahassee that will be of lasting im-
portance to the city.
In the event that the above scheme is
finally decided on, little difficulty will
be experienced in disposing of all the
shares that will be for sale. It is a
movement that every enterprising bus-
iness man in Tallahassee will take pride
in pushing to a successful conclusion.
A DEEP MYSTERY.
It is a mystery why women endure
backache, headache, nervousness sleep-
lessness, melancholy, fainting and diz-
zy spells when thousands have proved
t..at Electric Bitters will quickly cure
.such troubles."I suffered for years with
kidney trouble," writes Mrs. Phebe
Cherley, of Peterson, Ia., "and a lame
back pained me so I could not dress
myself, but Electric Bitters wholly
cured me, and although 73 years old 1
now am able to do all my housework."

Farmers of Leon ShouldHave a Cred-
The Tallahasseean has heard several
Leon county farmers.express the de-
termination to have exhibits at the
State Fair in Jacksonville. It is to
be regretted that the County Commis-
sioners cannot see their way clear to
make an appropriation for a county ex-
hibit It would be money well spent,
and no one would regret it,
A splendid .opportunity to advertise
the resources of Leon county will be
lost if we do not have an exhibit.
Since, however, the county can do
nothing in .he matter, we would sug-
gest that the farmers who intend hav-
ing exhibits get together and make as
creditaole a display as possible. Such
a showing of enterprise would be very
commendable and result in some good
to Leon county by attracting attention
to the possibilities of this section.
Leon county has some of the best
farms and farmers in Florida. Many
of them use modern methods and up-
to-date implements, and they produce
crops equal to any in the State. These
men courd easily get up a fine exhibit.
There is little time to spare, however,
if they wish to make a good showing,
and the sooner they get to work the
better it will be.
TOT CAUSES A NIGHT ALARM,
"One night my brother's baby was
taken with croup," writes Mrs. J. C.
Snider, of Crittenden, Ky., "it seemed
it would strangle before we could get a
doctor, so we gave it Dr. King's New
Discovery, which gave quick relief and
permanently cured it We always keep
it in the house to protect our children
from croup and whooping cough. It
cured me of a chronic bronchial
trouble that no other remedy would re-
lieve.' Infallible for coughs, colds,
throat and lung troubles. 50c. and $1.00.

IHAS A MODEL SCHOOL.
County Superintendent Pays a High
Compliment to ,haires Schiui.
County Superintendent C. W. Ban-
nerman is making his first round of
visits to the schools of Leon county
for this term.
He finds the schools in every district
he has visited in a fairly prosperous
condition. In some instances the at-
tendance is not as large as it might
be. This is accounted for by the fact
that there has been considerable sick-
ness in those localities, and that the
farmers have been too busy to start
their children. In a short time the at-
tendance will be largely increased.
Mr. Bannerman speaks in very com-
plimentary terms of the school at
Chaires Station, which he designated
as a model institution of learning, in
fact, the best school in the county, out-
side of Tallahassee.
The principal, Prof. H. E. Wood-
berry, is a very popular instructor, and
has the hearty co-operation of the pa-
trons of his school. He has an aver-
age attendance of fifty pupils, and
everyone shows evidence of conscien-
tious work and deep study. Prof.
Woodberry must feel greatly encour-
aged over the standing of his school,
and the patrons certainly should con-
gratulate themselves over the employ-
ment of such an able instructor.
OLD SOLDIER'S EXPERIENCE.
M. M. Austin, a civil war veteran, oft
Winchester, Ind., writes: "My wife wasj
sick a long time in spite of good doc-J
tor's treatment, but was wholly cured
by Dr. King's New Life iT.-ls, which
worked wonders for her health." They

A current number of an Atlanta
magazine contains a sketch of the late
Maurice Thompson, and. with genuine
Georgia nerve, claims him as her own.
Although most of his life was spent in
Indiana, we Tallahasseeans can lay a
claim to him to the extent of having
had him reside here and absorb some
of the local color of this city, which he
had' given the world in "A Talalhassee
Girl." 'i-e charming word pictures of
the scenery of this city and its sur-
rouhding country are well set forth in
this volume, and delineated as only a
lover of nature in all her various
moods could have done. As for the
merits of "A Talalhassee Girl," as a
novel, opinions differ, but it is not up

How is it that some men win fame
and fortune with apparently no ex-

equally good never amount to any-

There are thousands of young men
in th.s country who are drifting idly
with the current. They are ambitious
to a certain extent-that is, they are
desirous of having a good time, want
more money and better jobs.
They want to get their share, or
rather more than their share of the
good things of this world without ex-
erting themselves and like Wilkins
Micawber, are forever and eternally
waiting for something -to turn up to
better their condition. They are ever
looking for i hazy, mysterious, indefi-
nite will-o'-the-wisp that manages to
elude their grasp every time they
reach out for it. This mirage is a false
uiide, and oft leads to despair. It has

,nd visionaries evidently draw con-
solation from this hallucination.
Such men rarely succeed in life.
They are an incubus to society-a bar-
niacle that impedes the movements of
their more progressive neighbors. The
right kind of men do not wait for
something to turn up. Knowing that
chance is not going to seek them, they
go out to hunt their chance. They
are always watching for it, and ar3
ever ready to grasp every opportunity.
The young men who succeed are th',
ones who work, looking out for the
interests of their employers as well
as their own. No matter wha' they
are doing, they are never late getting
to their post of duty, and are not .n
too big a hurry to rush away at 'he

CONVICTS AND GOOD ROADS.
The question of convict labor is one
that has been receiving attention in
nearly every Southern State. It is far
from settled, although it has been a
pressing one for years. There la no
doubt that the method employed in
many States of leasing Lie convicts to
the highest bidder Is a very demoral-
izing one. It brings the convicts in
competition with free labor, and nat-
urally keepsithe prices of labor down.
This is especially true in thm neighbor-
hood of large convict camps, although
other localities may not be so affect-
It is our opinion, based on observa-
tion In States where the method is em-
ployed, that the questions of eonvlet
lajor and good roads an. bem answered
Missiaslppi furnished interesting rad-
In. It was submitted I tow.dayv ago
by the bitte Warden, and Is sugg,.tiv
of a direction in whica convicts might
be profitably and hualthfnlly employed.
The State of Mississippi ow4s four
farms outright, an. for a number of
years has leased or rented about ten
others, averaging 1,000 acres each. On
these have been distributed 1,000 con-
victs, mostly colored. A year ago the
Legislature purchased another farm in
the delta, the richest cotton producing
section of the State. Six hundred
acres of that land was cleared aad.
planted in corn. This season the State
farms wil produce 6,725 bales of cotton
and 13,500 bushels of corn. Two thou-
sand four hundred and sixty-two bales
of the cotton will go for rent, leaving
4,263 for the State's share. This will
barely be enough, however, to pay ex
penses of the penitentiary. On two big
farms in the hill section of the State,
the warden reports 780 head of fat cat-
tie, one-half of which are to be sold;
150 head of hogs, 2,000 tons of hay.and
hundreds of bushels of peas and pota-
This method is proving satisfactory
in Mississippi, but we think that the
employment of convicts for the con-
struction of good roads would be more
satisfactory in Florida just now.
HELP BEAUTIFY TALLAHASSEE.
in order to attract new residents a
town or city must be rendered as at-
tractive as possible. It is the duty
of every citizen to assist in promot-
ijg cldanliness. This applies espec-
ially to your own premises. If your
fences or buildings are in a dilapidated
condition, see to it that they are re-
paired as soon as possible.
Remove everything that serves to
detract from the beauty of the city.
Paint or whitewash the outbuildings
and fences. Nothing so tends to beau-
tify a place as cleanliness nor con-
duces more to the health of a com-
Tallahassee is ideally located and is
really a pretty place, but i, could be
made the most beautiful little city in
the United States. It only requires a
small amount of energy and persever-
ance to accomplish this end. Of
course the streets and sidewalks need
looking after. Broken and uneven
sidewalks are an abomination, while
streets that are dusty or cut up with
gullies after every rain should not be
Perhaps, if the citizens would show
an inclination to help build up and
improve the city by beautifying their
own premises something might be ac-
complished towards getting better
streets. Such a display of enterprise
on the part of the town might encour-
age the Legislaure to take more pride
in the State's property here.
Another thing on this line: Talla-
hassee has a good volunteer fire de-
partment. The men are prompt to re-
spond to a call, are just as efficient' as
the average volunteers, hut th*y are
not equipped to successfully fight fire.
This:is a self-evident fact, as any one
can Bee. A fire can gain great head-
way in the time elapsing between the
giving of the alarm and the arrival of
the department on the scene. The
men are thus compelled to work under
disadvantages that would prove dis-
couraging to the best equipped com-
pany. If the fire occurs at night, or
on the outskirts of the town, the de-
partment usually gets there in time
to save the chimneys.
This state of affairs will Tonin',e
until we have a destructive blaze then
the city will awake from its slumbers.
It is always too late to lock the stable
doors after the horse has been stolen.
But this is just what the people usu-
ally do. They wait too long to do the
things that should receive immediate
attention, knowing all the time that
the best interests 6f the community
are suffering from the delay.
ROOSEVELT'S BAD BREAK.
President Roosevelt has shattered
whatever hopes he might have had to-
wirds building up a white Republican
partyPn the South, and at one swoop
has elminated himself from the ranks
of presidential possibilities in 1904, so
far as the South is concerned.
The President, in entertaining
Booker T. W hilgto, the
lecturer, at a "family dinner recent-
ly, has. wilfully insulted the woman-
hood and manhood of this section of
the country, "fooll&h Southern senti-
ment" though it may be called.
The President's appoibtnent of ex-
Govermor Jonesm of Alabamia, to a Fed-
eral judgeship was such as to win high
eneomiuns from the people of the
South. aey xpeted great thing of
him. At a blow, however, he has shat-
tered their cofMdence and lost their
The initial idea of the exposition is
not historical but commercial. The
chief purpose of the exposition is the
promotion of more intimate commer-
cial relations with the seventy princi-
pal West Indian is.ands. It is claimed
in the prospectus that our exports of
merchandise to the West Indies is
greater than to the fifteen republics of
South and Central America combined;
three times those to Hawaii and the
Philippines; and greater than those to
China, Japan and Asiatic Russia com-
The West Indies, therefore, are
among Uncle Sam's best foreign cus-
tomers, and their representatives at the
exposition will be treated with a cor-
responding degree of respect. The
wares and products of the South will
be shown them.
The practical question just now-fol-
lowing the advertising text of the Tal-
lahasseean last week-is whether
Florida in general and Leon county in
particular,wall be commercially and ag-
riculturally represented there? Have
we nothing in the way of live stock,
dairy products or manufactured ar-
Lcles to exhibit to the world at large,
and our West Indian neighbors espec-

E. Warren Clark Writes Interestingl3
"The success of the community, as
well as the individual, depends on per-
sistent advertising." This is the text
of an editorial in the Tallahasseean
last week. Now, advertising is only let-
ting other people know what you have.
In point of pluck and public spirit to-
day i do not know of any c.Ly in the
South that is carrying out this text
more energetically than Charleston,
Yet, previous to the present supreme
effort, Charleston was one of the sleep-
iest towns south of the Mason and Dix-
on's line. Almost as sleepy and as
much of a back number as most of the
gentlemen from South Florida, at the
buffalo Exposition, continually de-
clared Tallahassee to be (for the cap-
ital of Florida certainly advertised it-
self at the ean-American as being con-
spicuous by its absence). Coming from
Buffalo direct 'to the expos...on
grounds of South Carolina, it would
hardly be fair to compare the two, ex-
ceut to say that the latter effort, un-
aided as it is by government subsidy,
is as creditable to little South Caro-
lina as the former is to wealthy New
Passing by the sombre islet of Fort
Sumpter and the cotton-lined wharves
of dilapidated old Charleston, we were
rapidly switched off on an electric trol-
ley line a mile or more out of the city,
where we found spacious grounds and
handsome buildings in course of con-
struction. The administration build-
ing was complete, the huge cotton pal-
ace was under roof and dome, whale
flanaing it were tne great buildings of
commerce and agriculture--the three
last forming a semi-circle connected
by covered colonnades.
Beautiful garden plats, flower beds,
shrubbery, palms and fountains are to
fill the entire area within this semi-
circle. Ornamental drive-ways also ex-
tend through other parts of the
There is a stadium or race course,
stock yards, music stands, a mid-way,

HOGS ON THE FARM.
XNy farmers labor under the Im-

Mlh. If you wish to attain the best
WRmtt it will be to your interest to
itik after the hogs a little more close-
Many bushels of corn are wasted
ery year on many farms In the corn
belt, and In other loelittlwe where the
porkers are fed this cereal. This waste
comes aboutsimplybecause the farmers
feed their hogs on the ground, InsteLi
of building a low platform for that
or this reason the quantity of corn
led does not produce as much meat aW
it should. Economy tois of great im-
portance in stock feeding This is es-
pecially true this year, in view if the
fact that the corn and other forage
crop of the country have fallen beiow
the average yield, and if great economy
is not exercised in feeding the hog' the
farmer will find his profits all gone.
A large portion of the corn fed to
qogs is tramped into the ground, and
thus lost Wherever hogs are fed con-
sidera,,e rooting will be done, and
when rains come places will be formed
Into which hundreds of grains will find
their way. Every farmer knows this,
and he ought to know that the loss
thus occasioned could be easily avoid-
A low platform would be the best
means of checking the loss. It shonlc.
be made-of coarse lumber, and large
enough to accommodate the hogs that
are to be fed. Common sense will
teach the Intelligent farmer hiw to
construct these platforms. We will
say, however, that they should not be
over three or four inches from the

have been disappointed many times,
but make one more effort to be cured
Gooch's Mexican Syrup has cured hou-
sands and it will cure you. Consump-
vion is the result of the food material
that- should go to support the body and
susain life being absorbed and thrown
off in tuberculous matter. To over-
come this waste of vital force and re-
store the nourishment to the system in
Its natural course, is to cure. This is
accomplished by Gooch's Mexican
fSyrup. It controls coughs, night
sweats, spitting of blood, soreness in
chest, Inflamed throat and lungs, diffl-
iulty of breathing, heavy coughs ac-
companied with expectoration, and
parched lips. We know you have been
disappointed many times, but make
one more effort to save yourself. You
ean buy a bottle of Gooch's Mexican
Syrup for 25 cents. It cures a simple
cough as if by magic, and is the best
remedy for whooping cough.
PROFITABLE tA RUCK FARMING.
Truck farmers who make a practice
of always having something for the
market manage to make money when
their less progressive neighbors are
doing nothing. In the neighborhood
of any wide-awake city there is gen-
erallyra demand for all kinds of fruits
and vegetables' while poultry raisers
command almost their own prices for
chickens, turkeys and eggs.
Few things that the truck farmer
can raise will prove more profitable
than strawberries under intensive cul-
tivation. With favorable seasons', suf-
ficient fertilization and proper culT*',-
tion, the yield is usually from 4,000i
to 25,000 quaits per acre, the latter
yield having actually been picked on a
South Georgia experiment nursery.
The conditions were extremely favor-
able, however. From 4,000 to 6,900
quarts per acre may be safely counted
on with intelligent care, and at ten
cents a quart it can easily be seen
where the profits come in.
The soil of Leon county is peculiar-
ly adapted to the cultivation of all
kinds of berries, and their culture
would prove a source of profit to all
who engage in it The development
of this branch of agriculture would do
much toward attracting attention to
this section, and it should be pushed as
much as possible.

"The farmerss ana dairymen who
have suffered. from tuberculosis in
their herds have not yet fully realized
that they have generally introduced the
disease by the purchase of pure bred
stock. Only a few weeks ago great
excitement was caused in Vermont by
the slaughter ofseveral large dairy
herds in which a very large proportion
of the animals were found afflicted.
Some writers for tne press exclaimed
in effect: "These are the most valuable
and highly bred herds; if they are tu-
berculous to such an extent, what must
be the remainder of our cattle?' They
did not grasp the idea that these par-
ticular herds had probably been cnm
taminated in the very eiort to im-
prove them by using pure bred breed-
"The danger from tuberculosis is not

T. B. Rice, a prominent druggist of
Greensboro, Ga., writes as follows:
"I have handled Dr. Pitt's Carmina-

known of a single instance where it
failed to give perfect satisfaction. Par-
ties who once use it always make per-
manent customers. We sell more of
this article than all the other Carmin-

THE MEW BABY
Opens up a new world to the loving
mother. If it is a strong, healthy baby
that new world is a world of happiness.
If it is a weak, fretful child the new
world is full of anxiety. It has been
proven in thonands of cases, that the
use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip-
tion makes all the difference between
strength and weakness in children.
Healthy, hapy mothers have healthy,
happy children. Favorite Prescrip-
tionn gives the mother strength to give
her child. It makes the baby's advent
practically painless and promotes the
secretion of the nourishment necessary
to the healthful feeding of the nursing
"I have been using Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre-
scription and can say it is just what you adver-
tise it to be," writes Mrs. Victor J. Hadin. of
Leonardsville Riley Co.. Kansas. "I began
taking it just two months before baby came
and was greatly benefited by its use. The doc-
tor who attended me said I did about as well as
any one he had seen (as I was sick only about
three hours), and also that your *Favorite Pre-
scription 'was 'one patent medicine' which he
did have faith in. We now have a darling baby
boy, strong and healthy, who weighed nine
pounds when born. During this month he has
gained three and one-half pounds. Have never
given him one dose of medicine."

Monday afternoon. The other error
was the statement that five white and

OLD CATTLE CASE SETTLED.
KissimmeeValley Gazette: The cat-
tie damage case of Queenie Huskie
'Johnson against the estate of Ziba
King was settled this week for $4,500.
I he case was brought over a year ago
and has attracted a great dea. of at-
tention. The facts in the case are
briefly as follows: Many years ago,
when the complainant was a baby, Ziba
King bought cattle from the child's
father. In gathering the cattle he
drove off some of the child's cattle, and
never paid for them. Acting upon the
advice of her guardian, W. L. Van
Duzor, of Kissiimee, the child brought
suit by her next friend, H. C. Stanford,
also of Kissimmee, against tue late
Zibe King for $60,000 to recover the
value of the cattle and their increase
since they were carried bff. R. H. Sey-
mour, of Kissimmee, and Maj. Alex-
ander St. Clair Abrams, of Jackson-
ville, represented the complainant, and

its water consumers, that the new con-
tracts now being signed are subject
to the decision of the Supreme Court
on appeal from the decision recently
made by Judge Malone.
Also that the annual minimum rate
for each and every house was ten dol-
lars; however by recent concession oi
the company, houses of four rooms or
less will be served- for the minimum
rate of six dollars.
In any and all cases a minimum
charge will be made for each house,
regardless of how many houses are

The company will not take advan-
tage of tneir right to collect the mini-
mum charges from the first of April
last, but said rate has been put into
effect from July first
Failure on the part of a consumer to
sign contract in no way releases them
from their obligations for the mini-
mum charges as long as said parties
continue to use the water.
